Real Madrid have confirmed that Ronaldo will miss Wednesday’s Champions League second leg clash with Bayern Munich after suffering a torn thigh muscle.

The Brazilian could be out of action for up to three weeks depending on his recovery rate.

“Ronaldo has suffered damage to the thigh and will not be able to continue,” said Madrid medical staff.

“We have examined him and our diagnosis is that he has torn his left thigh muscle.

“It is possible he may be unavailable for selection for up to three weeks.

‘He needs complete rest to make sure he does not suffer further damage, but we will have to see if that is enough to heal the problem.”
